what I think is that people shouldn't use yt as facebook,what you did is all fine and great and serves the same purpose as the brackets I made out of 1x1x1/8 angle iron 10 years ago, should I post pics too?

Good work. I like to see different pullers ideas and their execution.

I don't know why you have to run negative comments? This is not fb that's why I posted them....If you want to post pics of your bracket go ahead you have the right to....

Do you also plan to mount the battery(s) up front as well? If so, race car battery mount kits from places like A & A Mfg, All Star, etc., work well for an 11" or shorter battery. Purchased as an un-welded kit, they can be trimmed to match the exact battery, then welded. Dave - Wellsville

I saw the pictures last night and was amazed at the workmanship, over the years I have always liked looking at pictures of modifications, hopefully everyone will keep posting. As a fan of tractor pulling I enjoy this forum.

the easyest way to fix your problem is to not look at these threads. I think its great to see these kind of ideas.

Thank you for all positive comments guys,
I will look into the battery box kit....a buddy of mine works at a maple product fab company and can get me some stainless sheet metal as well out of the scrap bin.....I could do a battery box out of that as well..

thanks again,
Kelly

Hey Kelly. How much does that front weigh? Im in the process of doing the same but I'm thinking of scrapping the idea and building a aluminum one and putting my steel one on a buddies. Mines feeling a little heavier than I'd like.
